Re: Labryinth gardens

There's a wonderful article on labyrinth gardens in "The English Garden" May
2001. Looks like it can be as low or high maintenance as you wish. The key
factor is the layout. One is pavers set in gravel, another is a brick path
laid in turf. Or you could look at boxwood hedges! Let me know if you can't
find a copy  & I'll send it.
